I have the G75 with the 500 gb hd, which I'd re-partitioned into 3 partitions using EaseUS. I didn't touch the Recovery or Restore partitions, which EaseUS diagnoses as both fine. But when I try to do Windows 8 "Reset" it says to insert the installation disc and the ASUS Recovery utility says the Recovery partition cannot be found.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

It is the original 500 gb hd. I have Win 8, recently upgraded to Win 8.1. I just tried the Asus Backtracker, it could not find the recovery or restore partitions either. There was no Win 8 disc bundled with my laptop.
